Geocache Description:

The Wirral Ways 40th Anniversary

The “Wirral Way” is a 12-mile countryside path which follows the route of the former Birkenhead Railway route from West Kirby to Hooton. The old line, which closed in 1962, follows the River Dee estuary for 7 miles between West Kirby and Parkgate, and then heads across the Wirral to Hooton.

The Wirral Country Park was the first designated country park in Britain, and is based around the Wirral Way. Work started on the park in 1969, and the park was formally opened in 1973 by Lord Leverhulme. Thus, 2013 is the 40th anniversary of both the Wirral Country Park and Wirral Way.

This series of caches is along the full length 12-mile length of the walk. The majority of hides are micros, but there are a few larger containers to be found. For those walking the whole trail in a day, the hides are relatively easy so as not to delay progress. There are however several more difficult hides already in existence on the trail for those who want to include a few challenges in their walk!

We appreciate write-ups of what you did and what you saw when finding these caches in your logs, but will be happy with brief comments for the majority, as long as more detailed logs are provided for the key hides (those with place names in the cache titles).

Good Luck, and we hope you enjoy your walk along the wonderful Wirral Way
